Ubisoft confirms Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the next game in the series

Assassin's Creed Mirage

After several rumors and leaks, the Mirage appears

The next Assassin’s Creed game has been officially revealed. Ubisoft confirms that Assassin’s Creed Mirage is the next entry in the series.

No more official info was shown, outside of the art reveal. Ubisoft says it plans to share about the game at its Ubisoft Forward event. The stream will air on September 10 at 3 p.m. ET, 12 p.m. PT. You’ll be able to follow it on Ubisoft’s Twitch channel here.

This news follows several leaks and rumors about Mirage. This morning, artwork started to leak out around social media, reportedly leaked from Ubisoft’s own store.

Details of Assassin’s Creed Mirage had already been leaking out prior, including the name and other details. It seems likely to be the project reported on by Bloomberg earlier this year.

A new creed

If the reports are true, then the game will purportedly follow Basim from Assassin’ Creed Valhalla and target sometime next year.

Either way, the Assassin’s Creed 1 vibes from this artwork do seem pretty interesting. The last Assassin’s Creed was Valhalla itself, which was released in 2020 and received a number of post-launch content updates.

We do seem just about due for another Assassin’s Creed. Meanwhile, several other Ubisoft projects are on the horizon.

Skull and Bones, namely, is finally looking to set sail in November. The pirate ship combat sim has been in development for a while, and it’s nice to see it finally get out there.

The publisher also recently shuttered several projects, including Splinter Cell VR and Ghost Recon Frontline. The Avatar game from the company has also been delayed out of 2022, and is currently targeting fiscal year 2023.

Ubisoft Forward seems like an ideal time for the publisher to lay out its new schedule, after so many shifts. We’ll see what they have in store next week when the Forward airs.
